FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – For a second straight day, a major player on the TinCaps is involved in a blockbuster MLB trade.

According to multiple reports, outfielder Robert Hassell III is heading to the Washington Nationals organization as part of the Padres’ trade for MLB All-Star Juan Soto and first basemen Josh Bell.

Former TinCaps pitcher MacKenzie Gore and shortstop C.J. Abrams were also sent to the Nationals, along with minor leaguers James Wood and Jarlin Susana. Padres first baseman Luke Voit is also included in the deal.

San Diego’s Eric Hosmer was originally reported to be a part of the trade, but apparently would not waive his no-trade clause and will remain with the Padres.

Entering August, Hassell’s batting average is .299 with 55 RBI and 10 home runs. Hassell was also the first active TinCaps player to compete in the MLB Futures All-Star game in mid-July.
